  1. The WVTA is very pleased to add a new category to our competition at this years convention.

    Last year we had some requests about a Flat Art category in our competition. These requests were presented to our BOD and the category was added to our competition.

    For those of you that compete in this category we invite you to join us in our 25th Anniversary Convention and Competition at the Days Hotel and Convention Center in Flatwoods, WV on April 14 through 17, 2011.

    For this year our new Art Division will consist of three categories. Flat Art, Photography and 3-Dimensional. Flat art will include all paintings and drawings. Photography will, of course be all photos. 3-Dimensional will be sculpture or painted objects, ie. skulls, bones, any and all things of a 3-D nature.

    There will be multiple ribbons awarded in each category and one Judges Best of Show for the Division.

    Convention info can be found at the WVTA website www.wvtaxidermy.com
  2. I'm planning on making the trip down.

  3. [​IMG] Here's the first one I competed with at the missouri show last year. I won first place with it. It is a special painting because I painted it for my friend Dave Cowley who passed away a year or so ago.His wife gave it back for memories.
  4. Vince we are looking forward to growing this category into an exciting part of our competition. I hope you do make it to the convention. We will be pleased to have you become part of our association.

    Bruce that's a very nice piece of work. It is folks like you and your story that make such works part of the history of the trade and the competitions more than just a contest. I know it's a pretty good hike from the "Show Me" state to the "Mountain State" but we certainly welcome you to join us.

  6. We have had good response to this new division to our competition. We appreciate the questions that have been asked as this has given us insight as to how to structure the category.

    WVTA looks forward to growing this into a larger part of our conventions in the future.
